Jump start your career at the Student-Alumni Career Networking Events 2022.

The Student-Alumni Career Networking Events are a series of three events with a panel of international UvA alumni who share their experiences with pursuing a career in the Netherlands after their graduation. Each panel discussion focuses on a different career sector and is followed by informal networking drinks with  international students and alumni.

When: Thursdays in March and April

The events focus each on a different career sector:

  1. Research and PhD: 10 March 2022 (19:00-21:00)
  2. Creative and Technology industry: 17 March 2022 (19:00-21:00) 
  3. Nonprofit and NGO: 21 April 2022 (19:00-21:00)

Who is invited?

All international UvA Master’s students considering a career in The Netherlands are invited to participate in the events.


The events take place in the Music Hall in CREA (Nieuwe Achtergracht 170, 1018 WV Amsterdam) at the Roeterseiland Campus. 

  • Research and PhD
    • Thursday, 10 March, 19:00-21:00

    The research and academic sector has its own unwritten rules and culture. In general, you need analytic skills and a willingness to work hard and thrive in a fast-paced environment that has its own demands and rewards. Understanding the dynamics of academia will help you decide if a research career is right for you and will help you successfully apply for a research position.


  • Creative and Technology industry
    • Thursday, 17 March, 19:00-21:00

    This event will focus on work in the creative and technology industry, for example app development, data & analytics, digital media, the gaming industry, advertisement, interactive design, etc. What are the possibilities for non-Dutch graduates to work in this sector? During this event, best practices and valuable information will be shared, to help you take your steps towards employment.

  • Non-profit and NGO
    • Thursday, 21 April, 19:00-21:00

    Whether you are interested in environmental issues, women’s rights, education, human rights or any other cause, a non-profit organisation is the place where you can work on improving these issues. The non-profit and NGO sector is very broad and includes all organisations that are not privately owned. It covers everything from large organisations such as the EU and UN to very small, quite unknown organisations. What is it like to work in this sector and how do you find the right career path? During this event UvA alumni will shed light on these questions.
